Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah credits Brad Miller with teaching him how to pass

1

"I’ll never forget that one day at the Berto after practice," Noah recalled. "Brad said, ‘Come over here. This is what you need to do. You’re not going to be a catch-it-in-the-post guy. I got some things that can really help you. Just listen to what I got. I’m going to teach you some things at the elbow and it’s going to help your career.’ It changed a lot of things for me.

Kevin Martin's emotional attachment

9

[...] He said his return to the Toyota Center was no big deal. "It's more like Sacramento would be it for me. That's where my emotional attachment is. "

Bulls trading Deng for high pick?

"The whole point is creating flexibility to make more moves in the near future, without paying the luxury tax for a team that may struggle to make the playoffs."

Kirilenko: I don't care about money

24

Nothing new here, but AK states that he doesn't really care about the salary. The url is in Greek, taken from Kirilenko's latest intreview to SovSport.ru. Translation: "I have many offers from the NBA. There is more than one solution. I am in an advantageous position because there is no need to rush into a decision. I have time, I am not in a hurry, I am not stressed, since I already have a contract with CSKA. The only offer worth consideration for a NBA return won't have to do with money but with the general situation. It has to be a real team, with a real coach and high ambitions reaching the title. Signing to a team like that would be meaningful and logical. I don't want to just to put my signature, wait my contract to expire and then return home."

Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Flynn almost certainly will be traded this month

With Rubio coming in Minny, this is a good chance for many teams to buy low. What Kings player would you give up for him, especially if we don't land Knight or Walker?

Stern: NBA Not Ready To Sell Hornets

9

"When people call and express an interest,`we say ‘terrific, we’ll take you to a game, take you to a meal, and put you in the queue, so we can be ready to talk to you when we are ready for this asset to be sold,’ ’’ Stern said. "We’re not pursuing local ownership at this time.

Low Team Salaries and Playoffs

A look at how frequently teams with low salaries make the NBA playoffs.

Missing Spencer Hawes?

15

"He's slow (the Cavaliers absolutely destroyed the Sixers on any pick-and-roll Hawes was involved with), he can't rebound, and he's playing soft. He doesn't even appear too concerned about all of these things." -Deep Sixer by Kate Fagan It's all so clear about Hawes now that I don't have to wear purple shades to evaluate him. The Dalembert trade looks better and better.

DeMarcus Cousins dislocated his finger

It looks like he's enjoying it, laughing about it, even took a picture.

Childress staying for the 3rd year in Greece

It's in Greek so here's a translation of the 1st paragraph: "Unless something shocking happens, Josh Childess won't activate the clause to return to the NBA and will continue to play for Olympiacos for the 3rd straight year, confirming the RedPlanet.gr reportage."

ESPN: Mavs register interest in Kings' Martin

43

"The Sacramento Kings continue to insist that Kevin Martin is not going to be made available to interested teams before the Feb. 18 trading deadline. The Mavericks, according to NBA front-office sources, continue to tell the Kings that they want a call back if that stance changes. Dallas is prepared to part with the struggling former All-Star swingman in a deal for Martin".

All-Rookie Teams (one more snub)

6
All Rookie 1st Team: Rose, Mayo, Westbrook, Beasley, Lopez All Rookie 2nd Team: Gordon, Love, Chalmers, Gasol, Augustin, Fernandez "Other players receiving votes, with point totals (first place votes in parentheses): Courtney Lee, Orlando, 12; Jason Thompson, Sacramento, 7; Marreese Speights, Philadelphia, 3; Greg Oden, Portland, 3 (1); Robin Lopez, Phoenix, 2 (1). At least JT got 7 votes but seriously... How did Robin Lopez get 2 votes, one actually for the 1st team?? He even had 1 vote for the 2nd place of the Rookie of the Year Award. Who's voting??? This is not sane.

DKV remain hopeful of keeping Rubio

The Badalona club's president Jordi Villacampa spoke about DKV’s intention to keep Rubio in an exclusive interview with FIBA.com earlier this season and he hasn’t changed his stance.

Comparing the cast and evaluating the future

After reading 214's very realistic and artistic post [edited for proper credit -- TZ], I was tempted to make a quick comparison of our core and future with the rest of the lowly NBA teams and just...

Stephen Curry about going Pro: "I'm 50 percent in the middle"

21

We'll have a lot of this indecisiveness in the coming weeks, so let's start... "I'm 50 percent in the middle," he said, standing in an empty Belk Arena on Wednesday afternoon. "Every five minutes I'm thinking one way and then I'm thinking the next way. So I'm just playing mind games with myself right now. "Once I get out of the meetings with my parents and my coaches, then I can give you a better judgment of where I am right now."

SI.com: "Rubio wants to enter 2009 draft"

19

"It could be this June. Rubio has made it clear that he would like to enter the 2009 draft, according to sources close to the situation. The 18-year-old Rubio is draft-eligible because he will turn 19 before the end of 2009. But it's not that easy. Rubio has a complicated, multimillion-dollar contract buyout with his Spanish team, DKV Joventut Barcelona. NBA teams are allowed to contribute a maximum of $500,000 to buy out the contract of a foreign player. That means if Rubio seeks to leave Joventut, he could be forced to use most of the money from his first NBA contract to pay for the buyout."

ESPN: Amare to the Kings on Draft Day?

9

"Keep your eye on Sacramento closer to the draft, especially if the Suns decide to put Amare Stoudemire back on the market. Outside of Memphis' Rudy Gay, Sacramento had the pieces Phoenix wanted most when the Suns still were open to dealing Stoudemire. The Kings ultimately were unwilling to part with a combination of expiring contracts, rookie forward Jason Thompson and their No. 1 pick in the June draft -- which could well end up being the No. 1 overall pick in the draft -- for Stoudemire."

Source: Kings-Wolves Discussing Trade?

7

The Kings have been negotiating with the Timberwolves on a deal that could land them guard Rashard McCants, according to league sources. Sacramento is reportedly interested in sending guard Quincy Douby forward Mikki Moore to Minnesota for McCants.

"Sacramento's Brad Miller for Odom"

4

"And see if this sounds familiar: Suddenly, all eyes turn toward Odom. He's on the salary cap for $14 million and with a marginalized role, the Lakers want to defer a decision until after the season, unless the bottom falls out. They might actually be able to get Sacramento's Brad Miller for Odom, since the Kings were willing to trade them Ron Artest for Odom last season."

Bobcats offer G.Wallace for Brad

22

"The Charlotte Bobcats' ongoing attempts to acquire a true big man to partner Emeka Okafor have led them to propose the return of Gerald Wallace to the Sacramento Kings, according to NBA front-office sources. The Bobcats, sources said, want Brad Miller in return. But the Kings, I'm told, are highly unlikely to bite. They've had some interest in recent years in reacquiring Wallace -- who has blossomed into a versatile and productive swingman at both ends since he was claimed by Charlotte in the 2004 expansion draft -- but they also have a surplus of wing players at present ... too many to take on the four years and nearly $40 million left on Wallace's contract after this season."

Moore Injured - Quincy Starting ?

52

Mikki Moore is expected to miss the Kings' next two games because of an ankle injury sustained Sunday night. Though a decision hasn't been officially announced, Quincy Douby could find himself in the starting lineup at shooting guard for the Kings on Tuesday night. - Rotoworld.com citing the Sac Bee
